Air Quality In Aberdeen
Welcome to Aberdeen City Councils air quality web pages. These pages provide information on air quality in Aberdeen, pollutant types and health effects, measures being taken to improve air quality in Aberdeen and much, much more.
Clean air is essential for health and helps to make the city a pleasant place to live. The most recent information and data on air quality in Aberdeen is available in the Councils Updating and Screening Assessment 2012. In Aberdeen air quality is generally good, however there are a few hot spots of raised pollution levels around the city centre and main roads such as Anderson Drive / Haudagain Roundabout and Wellington Road. Road traffic is the main source of pollution and the Council aims to improve air quality through the implementation of the Air Quality Action Plan 2011. However, clean air isnt just the responsibility of the City Council: everyone can play their part by changing travel behaviour.
The Breathe Easy Information Leaflet provides information on what the Council and individuals can do to improve air quality.
